I loved how the words flowed with the stories that I was familiar with e. The little sea maid, Thumbelina, The snow queen, of which if you check out my progress updates you can see some little reviews of and rekindled my love for some stories I had once forgotten. For example, whilst reading The Little Match girl I remembered how I had a cassette set with a lot of Anderson's work on them and it brought me back to the times where I'd take them out, sit at my desk at home, with my little red chair and tape player, and listen to them for hours! The memories!

I did find it a struggle to get through some of the more unfamiliar stories, especially ones that were very different to what I'd usually read, but this doesn't in anyway cheapen the beauty of the tales, it just took a little more effort to read, therefore in most cases, increasing my appreciation. Some examples of ones that were a little difficult to read and slow to start but I ended up loving were Grandmother, Poultry Meg's Family and Under the willow tree.

I was confused with if the whole of the stories after The Story of my life were still part of the autobiography, which would make sense if they were, but if so, almost felt detached somehow.

The Ugly Duckling Analysis

The layout of the original text and illustrations complemented the stories beautiful and I'm so happy to have read all of Hans Christian Anderson's works from when he was just beginning and finding his feet to when he was soaring high with the best of them- which was enhanced through his autobiography! This is a special gem that I think everyone should read, whether you're just introducing The Little Mermaid to your young ones for the first time perhaps with the censor on :P or you're picking up some much beloved stories for the th time, just read it!

Some of my all time favourite fairytales Over the course of a few months this year, I decided to go back and reread each of Hans Christian Andersen's fairytales in a fabulous hardback that my mum and dad bought for me when I was a little girl. It's an utterly gorgeous book. I read it from cover to cover and back again a million times over as a child yet I kept it extremely well and was careful to not damage it because to me it was the most exquisitely beautiful book I owned.

I read it Enchanting. I read it almost with a hushed reverence and I still get those same feelings when I read it now as an adult. The fairytales contained within are timeless. Muchos padres evitan contar las historias de este hombre a sus hijos porque "son muy tristes" o "son demasiado crueles" Most interesting as it contains everything not just the best known ones.

My one problem was with the intermittant cloyingly sentimental religiosity. After reading one of those I generally took a rest of about a week. Loved the illustrations.

Couldn't really understand it as I didn't realise that it wasn't meant for young readers.

I read The Fir Tree last night for the first time since I was a child.

Hans Christian Andersen Complete Fairy Tales

You sure are ugly! He was growing larger; his feathers were coming in and the ugly duckling was able to fly off the ground. However, the ugly duckling had become very weak and hungry; he did not have enough strength to fly. With that, the farmer and his wife allowed the ugly duckling to live with them in the hopes that the duck would lay eggs for them to eat. They waited and waited… and waited. But nothing happened. The ugly duckling never laid eggs; he did, however, grow larger and harder to take care of. Though the farmer and his wife had grown fond of the ugly duckling, they had no more room him in their house.

He waddled through now frozen marsh plants and large frozen river reeds. He waddled over frozen bundles of sticks and frozen piles of dung. All this waddling made him colder than ever. Miraculously, the ugly duckling had survived the cold winter. With spring, all of the frozen ponds melted and the frost evaporated from the marsh plants and river reeds. The ugly duckling was still sad, however. He approached a crystal clear pond and saw a family of the most beautiful birds he had ever seen - swans. Suddenly, a swan gracefully glided through the water over to where the ugly duckling was sitting.

Your feathers are the whitest I have ever seen. How they gleam in the sun! Confused, the ugly duckling wandered to the water and peered at his reflection. Much to his surprise, he was not an ugly ducking, for he was not a duck at all! He was a beautiful white swan with a long and elegant neck. One day, as the swans were swimming, a man and his wife came strolling by with their child. The swan recognized this couple as the farmer and his wife.
